The Thirumangai Alvar Mangalasasana utsavam in the month of Thai (Jan-Feb) on the New Moon day ( Amavasai) witnesses 11 Garuda sevai a spectacular event in which festival images idols from the 11 Thirunaangur Divyadesam shrines in the area are brought on Garuda mounts to Thirunangur.
An idol of Thirumangai Alvar is also brought here on a Hamsa Vahanam (palaquin) and his paasurams (verses) dedicated to each of these 11 temples are recited. The Utsavar (festival deity) of Thirumangai Alvar and his consort Sri Kumudavalli Naachiyar are taken in a palanquin to each of the 11 temples, through the paddy fields in the area. The paasurams (poems) dedicated to each of the 11 Divyadesams are chanted in the respective shrines. This is the most important of the festivals in this area, and it draws thousands of visitors.
